First solo show of American photographer Arlene Gottfried in Los Angeles on view at Hardhitta Gallery

Hardhitta Gallery presents the first solo show of American photographer Arlene Gottfried (*1950) in Los Angeles, in cooperation with Bruce Lurie Gallery. The exhibition shows 25 cibachrome and silver gelatin prints taken throughout the city of New York and its surroundings between 1970 and 2006. Born in Brooklyn, Gottfried took her first photographs in 1969 at the legendary Woodstock Festival; capturing unusual and striking moments would become her trademark. Always drawn to the diverse communities she knew while growing up, Gottfried went on to document the vast diversity of New York City. Beginning with Coney Island and Crown Heights, she expanded her radius to the Lower East Side, Spanish Harlem, and then to other regions of the United States. Arlene Gottfried depicts her fellow New Yorkers with intimacy and valiance, revealing fascinating portraits of people who seem to operate outside of conventional rules
